About the Book
This book documents, in images, the extraordinary time of the initial "Shelter in Place" orders in California. The photographer, Jim Wilkinson, was compelled to record this chapter in Palm Springs' history. While the vacant streets throughout the city had a certain beauty, at the same time the sadness of what he was seeing was almost overwhelming. At the time if this publication, the story is not over. We still wait to observe and read the final chapter. In the meantime, we get to revisit the truth that love conquers all, and to remember that it's best to appreciate every person and moment because nothing in life is guaranteed. Our hope is that the images speak to you, the viewer, in a personal way. Let us all hope and pray that we emerge on the other side of this as better human beings.
